performance upgrades

Not sure if this is the right forum, but I need some ideas getting started with performance mods.

I have an 01 F250 6-inch lift, auto, with no real mods I could find. Putting a 5" stainless exhaust on this weekend and looking to go up from there. I need pulling power in the Spring/Summer for boating.

Turbo upgrades?
Air Filter systems? (Banks?)

Just need a good start and someone who can help me find a good shop around Cincinnati.

I will move towards upgrading the injectors once I get the basics covered.

Here are some basics:

Intake ..Tymar kit best you can buy
Guages..Isspro's best match for a SD IMO
Exhaust..varries whatever makes you happy
TS chip with custom tunes..We have TW and BTS tunes

Stock HPOP good for stage 1's not the best for a chiped split shot
SRP1..for stock splits up to small Hybrids

Additional HP..lots of options..IMO PMR's stick with Full Force Diesels stage 1's as no one can guarantee when the rods will let go.

Get Forged rods:
Stage 1's..350+ HP
Stage 2's 450+
Need more get Hybrids.


D66..up to stage 2's
H2e stage 1-2's
Stage 2 to 250cc Hybrids modded H2e

Stock to stage 1's..BTS VB and a 6.0 Tq converter
more than stage 1' get a BTS or JW built trans..
Get a 6.0 trans cooler 31 row

Hope that helped..PM if I can help further.
